Gift Guide: For The Whole Family

December 1, 2016

It is OFFICIALLY the Christmas season!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ (I’ve been celebrating since the beginning of November, but don’t mind me.) ๐Ÿ˜‰ย Every weekย leading up to Christmas, Iโ€™ll be sharing a gift guide for a certain group of people (click here to see all the gift guides). All of us seem to have a few people that stump us every year, so I hope these gift guides will help you figure out what to get those people in your life! This week,ย I’ve got a special one up my sleeve; it’s aย gift guide: for the whole family! ๐Ÿ™‚

Gift Guide: For The Whole Family

(This post may contain affiliate links. For my full disclosure policy, click here.)

I come from a big family. When I was growing up, some friends and family of ours didn’t buy each of us an individual gift; instead, they bought our whole family a gift to share. It seems like kids would each want a gift of their own, but I really looked forward to these gifts because I knew it was something that my family and I would enjoyย together! Whether it’s for financial, practical, or thoughtful reasons, a whole family gift is a great way to celebrate Christmas with people that you love! Since a whole family gift has to appeal to different ages, generations, and genders, it can be a little tricky. But never fear, I’ve got a whole list of gifts that areย PERFECT for the whole family! ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Cranium 3-1 Game Boardย (this was my family’s favorite game)
  2. Undivided: A Family Devotional
  3. Signature Brands Holiday Popcorn Tin
  4. Casting Keepsakes Intertwined Family Hands DIY Casting Kit
  5. SleepytimePJs Family Matching Pajama Setsย (perfect for young children)
  6. NERF N-Strike Elite Team Pack of Four Blasters
  7. Wilton Mini Village Gingerbread House Kit
  8. Rock Band 4 Band-In-A-Box Bundle
  9. Their favorite TV series on DVDย (especially if it isn’t on TV anymore!)
  10. Snowtime Anytime Indoor Snowball Fight
  11. Box-O-Snacks Super Candy Variety Box
  12. K’NEX 70 Model Building Set
  13. Sunbeam Mini Donut and Brownie Makerย (what family wouldn’t want this??)
  14. Franklin Sports Recreational Volleyball and Badminton Set
  15. The Peanuts Movie
  16. Back to the Roots Water Garden Fish Tank
  17. Splosh Create Your Own Bucket Listย (this would be so much fun!)

    AH! Love that you did a family orientated gift guide, Abbey! So smart and intentional. I feel as I’m getting older and friends have kids that it’s hard to buy separate, so buying for the whole family is easier!

      Thanks, Summer! ๐Ÿ™‚ You are so right! We have 4 nieces/nephews, and we bought one gift for them this year! Definitely have to be more intentional, but I know they’ll love it! ๐Ÿ™‚

    We love K’nex! My boys like to build their own trucks and then we have a demolition derby. ๐Ÿ™‚ So fun!
    I can’t wait til we can do family gifts with my siblings. We do couples gifts now and that is fun but I can’t wait to get something for other littles too. ๐Ÿ™‚
